LOS ANGELES -The Hub, a television network for kids and their families, will kick off its fall rollout of new and returning original series with the second-season premiere of the network's popular one hour family game show "Family Game Night" featuring two new back-to-back, one hour episodes Friday, September 2 (7 p.m. & 8 p.m. ET). The returning, top-rated, family-favorite series will be supported by marketing initiatives that include a sweepstakes during which viewers watching live can win prizes including the same Grand Prizes as the families competing on the series.

Hosted by Daytime Emmy(R) nominee Todd Newton, the Hasbro Studios-produced series returns with all new challenges based on classic games such as "Simon" and "Trouble" added to gameplay, as well as brand new original challenges, in a larger-than-life environment that is bigger, better, and more exciting than ever. Within each episode, two families compete head-to-head playing outrageous versions of the most beloved and iconic board games, challenging both contestants and viewers with strategy, creativity and pure luck for the chance to win cash, prizes and awesome family vacations.

Just three days after the premiere, The Hub will celebrate Labor Day and the second season launch with a special marathon of nine back-to-back, favorite episodes of "Family Game Night," Monday, September 5 (10 a.m. -7 p.m. ET).

To usher in the new season of "Family Game Night," on September 2, The Hub is hosting a sweepstakes during that day's episodes (7 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET) and during the September 9 episode (7 p.m. ET.) During the sweepstakes, viewers will have an opportunity to call in to win the same Grand Prize as the TV contestants on those episodes. Supplemental prizes include five $1,000 awards. Beginning August 27, kids and their parents can visit www.hubworld.com for more details.

In addition, through September 4, The Hub's "Family Game Night" is being promoted in 6,100 Wendy's(R) restaurants throughout the U.S. with special "Family Game Night"-inspired toy premiums. The special promotion was developed in partnership with Hasbro's promotional licensing team.
